Viriliter Age - Act Courageously

Marist College Crest

A Marist Education

A boys’ day and boarding College for Years 5 to 12

Since 1940 our Brisbane Catholic Boys’ School has provided a well-rounded Catholic boys’ education where the foundations of faith and manhood are given as much priority as academic, cultural and sporting endeavours. At Marist College Ashgrove our beautiful campus provides the sanctuary for boys to learn how to act courageously, be just and serve well. It’s a school where your son will experience the Marist family spirit, develop friendships for life and grow into a man of character.

Our Education Approach

Marist students are encouraged to demonstrate good scholarship, a love of learning, independence in thought and action, and the readiness to take responsibility for their own formation.

100% Marist 100% of the time

Quintessential to our Marist spirit is to live like Mary ‘Our Good Mother’ and in the spirit of Champagnat with a sense of hospitality, family spirit, humility and simplicity, love of the Gospels and love of work.

Co-Curricular Opportunities

At Marist College Ashgrove our Co-Curriculars are designed to enhance the holistic education expertise of all our students and complement their classroom endeavours.

Pastoral Care from the heart

Our College is a place where hard work and excellent achievement are valued, where the individual is genuinely loved and prized, where a strong family spirit is evident, where there is a lack of pretence and where the Gospel is at our heart.

Head of College

Guided by the Marist values and the College motto “Viriliter Age” – Act Courageously – our boys are challenged to conduct themselves at all times as young men that aspire to excellence in everything they do.

College Life

Expansive Opportunities

Extending our students passion and potential though academics, cultural endeavours and sporting opportunities is deeply embeded into the fabric of the Marist College Life at Ashgrove.


Marist family in action

At Marist College Ashgrove, we understand that boys learn in many different ways. Nowhere is this more critical than within our boarding school, where our ability to educate and care for a boy depends on our ability to connect with them and to provide support as an extension of their home.
